Integrate Intelligence X into your project: Use the Software Development Kit

Published on December 20, 2018 by

We are excited to announce our new Software Development Kit. It is free and can be used by anyone to integrate Intelligence X into their project. Whether it’s a website, service, or local program, you can use our versatile API to enrich your data and provide additional context.

The SDK is published here: https://github.com/IntelligenceX/SDK.

It contains the following components:

When to use the API

There are many use cases for using the API of Intelligence X:

  1. Website or online service: If you run a service that shows information about IPs, domains, Bitcoin addresses, etc., you can use our search to enrich it (see later example about the Bitcoin address).
  2. SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) or other reporting or logging tool: Query the API if there is, for example, mentions of your company on the darknet, and generate an event in your software.
  3. Threat intelligence product: Provide additional context of where observables such as IPs and domains appear.
  4. Research and open-source intelligence: Use the API to quickly find appearances of your targets and focus on the actual analysis.
  5. Discovery: There is a feature called “Phonebook” which shows, example, all URLs and emails belonging to a particular domain.

The Intelligence X search supports the following selectors:

  • Email address
  • Domain, including wildcards like *.example.com
  • URL
  • IPv4 and IPv6
  • CIDRv4 and CIDRv6
  • Phone Number
  • Bitcoin address
  • MAC address
  • IPFS Hash
  • UUID
  • Simhash
  • Credit card number
  • IBAN

There are many use cases, whether it be for your product, website, or internally. The SDK is free to use.

HTML example

The HTML code is 100 lines and allows you to integrate the search engine into your website. Here is an example search for a Bitcoin address: 1GHKDgQX7hqTM7mMmiiUvgihGMHtvNJqTv. This was recently used as part of bomb threat emails.

If you operate a Bitcoin blockchain explorer, then you can use the API to query any results for the Bitcoin address and show it directly to your users on your service to provide them with additional context.

Command-line program

There is a command-line program “ix” as part of the SDK, which takes the first argument and queries all the results. Its source code is part of the SDK (written in Go) and can be compiled both for Windows, Linux, and Mac.

Feedback?

We are happy to add support for additional programming languages to our SDK, as well as other features and functionality.

If you have any feedback, we’d love to hear from you. Please write us at: info@intelx.io.

List of buckets

Published on May 5, 2022 by

At Intelligence X we categorize data sources into buckets. Buckets can be used as filters and to broadly identify the source of individual search results. For example, the bucket “Darknet Tor” indicates the result origins from some a Tor hidden service (.onion domain) and was collected by our Tor crawler. Buckets have human readable names


Adding support for new top-level domains

Published on April 6, 2022 by

We just added support for an additional 152 top-level domains (TLDs), increasing the support to 511 TLDs in total. Support means that you can search for those domains across intelx.io and APIs, and internally that our backend supports processing them. While you can start searching for them immediately, it will take some time until our
